Autumn Splendor

While at TJM last week, this amazing sparkley pumpkin jumped into by basket!!!  What was this shopper to do???  Well, she brought him home and made a nest for him with grape vine, excelsior, and berry branches!!!  Such splendor in the Autumn...

And once again, my paisley shawl makes an appearance......time to set the table for the abundance of the harvest.......














Please visit the parties on my sidebar and join in the fun of celebrating Fall.....

The cinnabar runner on the cream lace cloth lends an elegant touch to your Autumn tablescape. I really like your yellow ochre plates, and your new pumpkin is lovely. Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

I love your sparkly pumpkin, and what a great idea to use your shawl as a runner. That never occurred to me. I'm going to have to start rummaging through my closet for table setting ideas. Thanks!

Your pumpkin is beautiful. I can see why it jumped in your cart. I'm liking your butter dish and ladle.
